    This is the only Nolan Batman movie I like without many reservations though it is also the most ridiculous of the three. Maybe there's something to that. Dark Knight Rises is full-stop no-apology Nolan Batman, like he walked straight out of Philosophy 101 with a notebook full of doodles of new Batman gadgets and got to work. You have to respect a movie that does exactly what it intends to do, I guess.

    Goes down every time I re-watch it (fourth viewing). Though Hardy only improves.

    The last entry to Nolan's terrific superhero trilogy sadly collapses upon its own weight of ambitions and never rises from its own ruins.

    I almost turned this off halfway through due to its offensive stupidity, but I stuck with it, so I should be commended.

    I'm sure essays have already been written regarding Nolan's utter failure to grasp the Occupy movement, and the fascist ideology underpinning his films in general, but who needs to dwell on that kind of negativity? Seeing that the emperor has no clothes should admit one into some kind of exclusive club. Oh well.

    I did enjoy Anne Hathaway as a very cool and very sexy Catwoman. I could have watched a few more scenes of her tearing it up on the motorbike.

    Disappointing. When you try to do to much, you accomplish very little.

    Nolan tried to make Batman into Die Hard.

    There are flaws in this film. For sure there are. But the thing Nolan does brilliantly is build movies that have this incredible surging, pounding, unstoppable momentum that pins you to your seat while his sorta-kinda-almost coherent narratives trample all over you (a lot of the credit has to go to Hans Zimmer for his killer scores). You might come out of this movie and think of some unanswered questions, or find details you can nitpick over, but while you're in there watching it, you're utterly beguiled. Or at least, I was.

    There are so many issues I have with this film.

    First off, I think that Anne Hathaway gave a very poor and very uninspired performance as the legendary Catwoman. She brought no passion. I like Anne Hathaway, but she for some reason downright pisses me off in this.

    Secondly, Though I kind of like Tom Hardy's performance as Bane, all in all I find it to be rather weak. Admitingly, I do like his voice, but that's about it.

    Or: NOW THATS WHAT I CALL A BATMAN/COMIC BOOK MOVIE unequivocally i love this movie. As a Batman fan its the Batman movie i never thought id see: an actually great one. The performances are all terrific. Everyone focuses on the sublimely sexy Anne Hathaway (who is fucking awesome) but Bale ups his game from the last two (looking back at Batman Begins its now more clear than ever that he was doing Patrick Batmeman and his performance in Dark…
